Five of these locations, Asdee, Aughacasla, Boolteens, Brandon and Finuge, have already been approved for construction in the water services investment programme as part of the Kerry villages wastewater project phase 1. Consideration will be given by my Department to the approval of the remaining schemes when the preliminary reports are submitted by the council for approval.
